    Sky news said 19, 4 in a state of cardiac arrest along with the 15 confirmed. The idiosyncratic way of announcing death in Japan, the toll will be a while in adjusting. Sky also reporting a Japanese newspaper in saying the guy wanted to eliminate all the handicapped people in the world.

    Very Sad, poor people had enough in their lot in life and now this? Oxygen thieves mass murdering without guns. No one and no where is safe.

    My son and I just had a great time searching our neighbourhood. This is great if you have kids and can get out together.

    One problem I saw right away. A gym appears at a nearby blind intersection, a really narrow dangerous spot and last place you would ever want a gym.

    Daytime searching in summer -terrible for your phone, worst overheating I ever had on my phone, and the glare of the sun. the Pokemon app is hard enough to see indoors, let alone outdoors. A pretty poor GUI for such a game. Battery killer! take a portable battery charger with you.

    "Variety TV" so called because it lacks any. In all the years I have been here, there are 2 programs that were "Yes, I really want to watch that!" Just two....Sasuke and Kiniku Bansuke. I guess you could throw the Pride and K1 in that too. So much inane, repetitive ad filled bollocks.

    The key to loving Japanse tv....get cable!

    Even that. I cut too recently. I have two things now. UK sky news - which live streams 24 hours on youtube. It's great,check it out, Free HD news. The second: Streaming providers Netflix. Hulu and Amazon Prime . If I feel the need for a movie, doco or TV show, that's where I go.

    I will leave you with a quote from Sideshow Bob of the Simpsons.

    "Sideshow Bob: Don't remind me. My foolish capering destroyed more young minds then syphilis and pinball combined. Ooh, how I loathe that box. An omnidirectional sludge pump droning and burping..."

    I downloaded an apk of the game (Android perks) and thought i was clever, however all one can do so far in japan is start an account, get you first character (appears right near you) and thats it. The GPS coordinates for Japan are not valid yet in the game so trying to set traps or find poke stops is no go :/ oh well have a 5 min head start on the rest y'all when its finally goes live in Japan

    I tried Windows 10 for almost a month, I really wanted to like it, but it was so full of small bugs and compatibility issues that even with the maximum amount of patience I could possibly scrape together I wasn't able to keep using it in good conscience.

    I went from 7 to 10 and it was buggy and glitchy and became annoying. I solved it all by by doing a full reset of the system , just go to the search bar and search "reset"

    After doing a full reset it was like a clean pure win10 install and everything worked smoothly. All the old OEM apps and drivers were now gone and it was now an unadulterated Windows 10. The problem with upgrading is compatibility between the old win 7 drivers and software of the original computer and win 10.

    All problems of the trackpad, network issues, wifi issue all disappeared. Its now better than before. Only had to get one driver for the PC specific Fn keys. otherwise, its all good. Windows 10 when working is much better than 7

    Erdogan? the very same clown who is in the news for saying women who reject motherhood are "incomplete". This Erdogan? He is really having a fine week at displaying his humanity. Troglodite.

    the worst are the station staff at small local stations, sit on their fat butts in their little shacks, and if they do get up it's to bow and say a token greeting. Wish they were actually responsible for the upkeep of the station, so many derelict shabby local stations.

    well as self-proclaimed expert on sharks and my favorite of all the Carcharodon carcharias! all I can say is what a cruel and idiotic decision to keep a majestic and powerful creature in a padding pool, especially when everyone and their aunty knows that these creatures do not handle captivity at all!

    Even if you’ve taken the trouble to download a competing app, other iPhone services such as Siri and Mail will invariably take you to Apple Maps.

    Bingo, of course, it dominates when apple tightly control ios. One of my pet peeves with ios is the inability to set my own default applications. The article highlights maps. A big one for me is I don't like safari, I use chrome. (incidentally, another google product) The default mail app is poor, there so many better third party mail apps, ditto the calendar. Ios could awesome if they gave users more control.

    Henry" Apple" - You can have any colour you want ,as long as its apple.

    Sayonara betamax. I always thought Beta was crap because Al Bundy had it! never realized it was as superior format until much later on....Made for a great ESL lesson. Using despite and even though along with the dvorak keyboard.....My family got a Fisher VHS in 1982, man I felt cool back then!

    Have you seen a map of the claimed territorial waters? China, is having a laugh. Talked about chutzpah. Glad they are being called on it. China arrogance and greed knows no bounds.

    these epidemiological studies are a load of bologna..... Do you eat processed meat? yeah, what?, pepperoni on my pizza? yeah? right tick that box then. How can you truly know what the deep underlying cause of any disease is when you lump all the constituent components of a meal into the equation??? A person who has some nice ham or pepperoni on a salad or part of homemade meal, or the junk food eater eating pizza weekly - very different, but lumped together.

    vegetarianism is just as harmful to the environment..... Poppycock.

    Sorry, but you are clueless, vegetarians should be grainatarains, they eat far more grains than the rest of us, I eat more vegetables than most "vege"tarians, The word is a complete misnomer. Vegetables are the biggest part of my diet, Grains are the biggest part of a typical "vegetarian diet. The production of GRAINS is hugely, massively destructive to the environment. tilling, ploughing releases huge amounts of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Including the nasty Nitrous Oxide. Ploughing soil is a terrible idea, just ask the dustbowl Oklahomans what a bad idea it is. Not to mention the millions of small animals killed each year in crop fields - snakes, field mice, rabbits, prairie dogs, birds etc. It's fine for all them to die? hmmm

    Permaculture, animals eating grass and a symbiotic relationship is nature's way of protecting soil, not ploughing millions of acres for wheat, corn ,soy and rape. The only ploughing of soil should be small scale and for true vegetables which have superior yield and nutrition per acre than any grain

    Trees and forests need to be cut down and uprooted to make fields for a vegetarian society.

    No. We can plant on the land that would have been used to grow fodder for captive animals kept in feed lots. We could plant on the feed lots. Veggies take much less land to grow than meat to provide the same nutrition. the Eco system would be further unbalanced.

    No. You once again are confusing veges and grains. we can grow fields of grass, free range cattle and sheep can graze it, hens can run around eating bugs in the cow dung, nature can do its thing. but you are right feedlots/CAFO are hideous and completely wrong.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0YetZqtM5s footage of the collapse. Sickening to watch, the way it impodes - those poor kids on the bottom, hit close to home for me as my own son is the biggest in his class, that could have been him on the bottom. On J TV they calculated the bottom layer of boy had 140kg load each to support, most grown men would struggle to support that weight, let alone JHS boys.Get you hands and knees and let Yokozuma Harumafuji (136 kg) sit on you Pyramids are OK, but 10 tier ones? that is simply too much: reckless and negligent.

    Siri is hopeless, compared to google's voice recognition software. Voice searching on the web, google gets you there, accurate, intuitive- knows Japanese words and has the power of googles search engine behind it. Siri seldom helps, mishears constantly and "apologizes" all the time. Google wins easily .

    and tries to use Google Play

    what are your rambling about? google play is the "app store"

    Wasps? no, they were more specifically Hornets, Japanese Giants Hornets, there is quite big difference really. To most of us Wasps are yellowjackets and paper wasps (long legged wasps) Suzumebachi are hornets.

    Getting more iPods in people’s hands would broaden the potential audience for Apple’s new streaming service that went live at the end of June

    The same service that is not available in Japan yet? that one? I'm still waiting for spotify and netflix......
